I wonder if some of these people who stop are those who never waited long enough to see if it was effective, or others who perhaps waited a long time but had very little relief from their depression.

It's incredible the negative view some have about meds. They've been so brainwashed the other way that all meds are harmful & poison to our system. My 20 yr old son suffers from quite severe depression. He can function in the world but barely at times. He's thin to begin with & has lost 15 lb the last 3 weeks - I'm really worried about him but I can't force him to do anything. He HATES meds. so many different kinds have been tried on him with limited success & sometimes nasty side-effects. He was overjoyed when Celexa worked on him, but when it pooped out 2 months later, he wouldn't even bother trying to increase it. Urrggg! It did the same for me, but an increase made it work again & has for 2 years now.

I have no idea why some people are so adverse to taking meds!!! I've questioned him but he can't even explain to himself why, let alone me. When his depression lifts, he's reasonable & logical again. But how can I get it to lift if he refuses meds?
